Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 51 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Drill Chuck The only fault I have with this drill is that the drill chuck support is not very good (with a drill bit tightened in the check it is able to be moved up and down). This makes it difficult to keep drill bits on center. I do not use my drill for my job so it isn't used daily or even monthly at times. I have sent it in for repair twice in the past 2.5 yrs I've owned it. Apparently this is an issue that cannot be fixed. Not sure what can be done short of switching brands. February 23, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by alot of drill for the $$$ Great balance of size/weight/power. Most bosch tools get these ratios down perfect. Went off of other reviews on the web and I am happy for it. This dds181 has a great feel for my avg sized hands and is really made well. The only negative is the plastic housing on the chuck. No problems here so far but it doesn't inspire alot of confidence. Holds bits well just could be a little more reinforced. December 16, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Most difficult Item I ever received from Home Depot I have owned the same drill without the driver. It came with two batteries and a charger. Home Depot did not stock this brand. The only way I could get it was online. I ordered it and received it and it had no batteries. It was easy to return. I ordered the second unit and it only came with one battery. Needless to say I am not happy with home depot. The product a superior product, but if you cannot get it all why have it. January 13, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Purchase 18 Volt Lithium Cordless Drill Loved the drill. It is very easy to use and I got the fatpack battery packs so have long battery life. January 13, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Once Again This drill is a Christmas present for my daughter to replace a garbage brand that she wore out.. I have had a similar Bosch model for years with the18V Lithium battery and it has been a flawless workhorse, Bits change easily and don't slip, The battery maintains full power to the end, lasts a long time and charges quickly. This and the other old Bosch products I own have the feel of quality and a durability that all tools should. I think they come from an alien world. December 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This drill does it all!! I've had this drill for about a year. I researched several brands of 18V Li-IO drills and choose the Bosch due to the many positive reviews and my experience with the brand name's quality. I couldn't be any happier with my decision. I'm a home woodworker hobbyist and use the drill primarily for drilling holes in hardwood. The variety of torque settings give plenty of muscle to power thru any type of wood with any size of drill bit. Buy the Bosch drill and you won't be sorry. July 25, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great drill I've had mine now for several years and over the last 5 have used it extensively weekly! The large lithion battery pack is the best. It will lady as long as two slim packs. However, the slim packs are good, they're just not as good as the regular pack. July 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Power I purchased this drill in December and I absolutely love it. Since it has real power I am able to do jobs quicker. The light really does make a difference when I am doing a job. July 27, 2014
